I'll just toss in a couple more for consideration, even though they might not fit the "late" criteria - which I'm assuming you means post 90 - but they are great. Standing on the Moon is an amazing song, and quite unique (at least for our favorite band) in the way it takes on political issues so overtly, yet wraps itself in a love song. Foolish Heart is another to a lesser extent, tremendous lyrics, certainly speaking to their state of mind at the time! Maybe not a concert door-buster, but the acidic lyrics come spewing out like Dylan...

Shun a friend, shun a brother and a friend
Never look, never look around the bend
Or check the weather chart
Sign the Mona Lisa with a spray can, call it art
But never give your love my friend unto a foolish heart
